Founder & Project Director
The global pandemic severely impacted the refugee communities, leaving them with no source of income- unable to feed their families, pay rent and cover medical needs.
Dr. Shazwan SAHABUDEEN
Co-Founder & Healthcare Advisor
Dr. Shazwan Sahabudeen completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Medicine from a private university in Malaysia and was attached to Selayang Hospital. He then accomplished a Doctorate of Business Administration from IBSS in Denmark and is currently pursuing his PhD in Business Management.
Having owned and run multiple businesses ever since medical school, Dr. Shazwan has explored and ventured into various industries. He was awarded The Most Prominent Leader award in 2016.
With his many years of experience, Dr. Shazwan founded EduLife Academy in 2018 with a mission to create awareness on wellness, comprising health and wealth whilst focusing on personal development. EduLife Academy then partnered with The Edge of Fitness in 2019 to launch the popular program called MedFit, an integration of medicine and fitness which created a wholesome program that inspire people to not only look and feel good but also instil habits of healthy living. This charity-based program with it’s unique “Pay If You Wish” system was the first of its kind in Malaysia driven with a vision that everyone should have access to the right medical advice and physical training they truly deserve.
Naturally a warm and compassionate person, Dr. Shazwan thrives into assisting the families under Greater Action with medical emergencies, maternity care, mental health, surgical procedures and diagnostic imaging. In total as to date, there are over 500 families from Malaysia, Afghanistan, Somalia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Iran and Sri Lanka under his wing.
Kindness and knowledge are meant to be given without reservations and Dr. Shazwan stands by his belief:
“Don’t Just Live. Leave A Legacy”.
